Verdict

LORD BUFFHEAD carries a penalty for scoring over 5f here last time. He was winning off higher marks over track and trip last year, however, and gets the vote to follow up in this company. Vale Of Clara finished second over 7f last month and Cadium Loch found only one too good over course and distance at this time last year. Methaaly pops up at this level when the mood takes him and Irish raider Art Show can be given a chance on her placed efforts at Dundalk.
